#VMworld is on the horizon!

Summer may be coming to an end, but with the fall comes conference season. VMworld kicks it off in San Francisco next week from August 30 through September 3 and Dell is pleased to be a Global Diamond sponsor this year.


This year’s theme for VMworld is “Ready for Any.” Dell is certainly ready for any with several announcements planned for next week that build on Dell’s “future-ready enterprise” and partnership with VMware. Please stop by Dell’s booth #1417 to learn more about these solutions including our Best of Show nominated product, FX2, mini theater presentations and end-to-end solutions for Cloud, Networking, Converged Infrastructure, and Storage.

We’ll also be holding an in-depth hands-on lab that will give customers the opportunity to interact with a live implement of the Dell Storage integration for VMware Virtual Volumes (vVols). If you’re interested in checking it out, the session number is HOL-PRT-1674.


There will be a handful of Dell experts at the show speaking on enterprise solutions for the data center during eight different breakout sessions. These sessions will give customers a deep dive into the latest and greatest Dell and VMware partnered solutions directly from our engineers, executives and customers that are using our solutions in the field today. If you’re attending VMworld, please make sure to add these sessions to your schedule.
